    " I received this book as an advance copy from San Diego Comic Con and enjoyed it in its entirety. The book is about a boys adventure through a mysterious island trying to find his way back to his sister. It is wonderfully written with bad guys and cliff hangers along the way. The book is well worth the read. "

    " Just like Michelle Paver's chronicles of ancient darkness this was amazing!! I loved it!! It's one of my favorite series....It's so intriguing, the whole plot everything..it shows how much work Paver put into it. She's probably done lots of research and studying to write this book. Michelle Paver rules! Woop Woop!! "

    " I liked this book though it wasa bit slow paced. I look forward to the next one without frustration because it ended well. The onwe criticism I give is thatthe major issues weren't given a lot of time. They seemed mentioned in passing. The characters didn't dwell a lot on how they felt either but, considering this is essentially a childrens book,I can forgive it for not getting to deep. "

    " A thrilling beginning sets the tone for this wonderfully researched and written new historical fantasy set in the Mediterranean Bronze Age, as goatherd Hylas is on the run for his life, an arrow in his arm, and utter terror and bewilderment in his heart. Why are the terrifying ashy-colored Crows bent on killing him, after killing his dog and shooting him? Where is his little sister? As an Outsider, he can't get help from the village, and so steals provisions and seeks shelter in a tomb, only to find it is already occupied by a dying man who gives him a bronze knife and tells him to go to the Sea. More confused than ever, Hylas flees. Danger and intrigue pursue him, and he must survive by his considerable wits; he is an endearing and admirable protagonist whom readers will cheer for. Paver must have unlimited funds at her disposal, because she travels to the ends of the earth to gather material and the experiences that enable her to write so convincingly and to offer such immediacy to the reader. Borderline junior high, but acceptable for 6th graders. "

    " Read it for my son. The fact that there was too much showing and not telling kind of bored me to bits. I had heard such great reviews about wolf brother n naturally i picked this book expecting a similar kind of action "

    " It was slightly slow at parts, but I kept reading because the fast bits were worth it completely. The storyline is original and although simply written, well done. "

    " For a young teen novel I found it to be really well written. It doesn't glaze over things and it was surprisingly honest in the it portrayed violence; it was descriptive yet not gory. I really liked that and when I was younger, I think I would've really loved this book. "

About the Author
Author Michelle Paver

Michelle Paver was born in central Africa but went to England as a child. After earning a degree in biochemistry from Oxford University, she became a partner in a London law firm. She eventually gave that up to write full-time. The Chronicles of Ancient Darkness series came from Michelle’s lifelong passions for animals, anthropology, and the distant past—as well as an encounter with a large bear in a remote valley in Southern California. To research the books, she has traveled to Finland, Greenland, Sweden, Norway, Arctic Canada, and the Carpathian Mountains. She has slept on reindeer skins, swum with wild killer whales, and gotten nose to nose with polar bears—and, of course, wolves. The first four books have been made into widely acclaimed audiobooks, read by Ian McKellen.
